Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will hold the class on Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the FWP Region 1 Headquarters at 490 N. Meridian in Kalispell.

This one-time certification is required for anyone who sets traps for wolves in Montana. Individuals who have been certified in previous years do not need to retake the class.

In addition to specifics on equipment and techniques, participants will learn about the history, ethics, management, regulations, and requirements of wolves and wolf trapping. The class will be taught in a rotating-station format and will include outdoor stations. Students should pack warm clothing and a lunch.

To register, visit fwp.mt.gov/education/hunter and click the tab labeled, “Wolf Trapper Education and Certification.”

The trapping season for wolves is Dec. 15 to Feb. 28, 2019.
